This issue of the Global Journal contains several very interesting articles on issues that are incredibly current. The first article is especially important in light of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in the USA, and community responses to health care access. A second article relates to community resilience in light of disaster relief efforts. A third is about themes of heroism and honor in a multicultural environment.
The fourth article focuses on the Eco-Community conferences, popular with graduate students throughout the United States. The fifth article in the list is a critical and thoughtful reflection on community based research and graduate training. The final article in this issue is the summary of a symposium held at the 4th International Community Psychology Conference in Barcelona in 2012 and discusses several international perspectives on intimate partner violence.
In addition, there are two submissions that feature the work of SCRA mini grantees. One of them focuses on issues of rape and response on college campuses. The second mini-grant presentation focuses on a community psychology approach to climate change on the island of Tuvalu in the South Pacific, and its affect on the residents there.
We present three videos from the interviews conducted by Jim Kelly in the mid-1990's.
We hope you enjoy this rich and diverse issue!
